    Hi,


    Recently, I've been searching for Samsung Galaxy S4 i9500 on eBay and Amazon but soon I became skeptic because a 20% of reviews per offer were saying that the phones are pure copies(not from Samsung), wrong IMEI numbers, WiFi not working, over-heating and other.


    I want to know what is your experience with buying phones on these two websites or possibly the experience with the model I mentioned above.


    Thank you.

    I would only buy product like this from Amazon and only through Prime. Just look at the ebay forum here and see all the scammers. I would never buy electronics from ebay.

    I mistakenly bought some phones from ebay thinking I got a very good deal but I got burned. Thankfully i was able to return them but never again. Stick with Amazon.

    Amazon is good I guess!
    However; make sure you tick on Samsung company in the mobile section there to avoid copies!

    Hope yo understood
